Do you want to see stalactites and stalagmites, travel to cities cut out of rocks, and taste pitcher wine? Throw on your backpack, come to Georgia, and reach the sky by paragliding over the beautiful landscapes.

It doesn't matter whether you choose to travel on foot, on horseback, or by bicycle (such means of transportation and the complementary roads for it are well-developed throughout Georgia) - the hiking trails make your trip easier.

With a team of experienced guides, nothing is impossible.
